Developing Extended Discussions with Paideia

Manaiakalani Professional Supervisor, Anne Sinclair, explained how the Paideia approach and Socratic questioning replicates Learn, Create, Share in many ways. This methodology allows teachers to scaffold learning and develop extended discussions that are student led, providing the ideal forum for argumentation to happen.

"Looking at the new NCEA literacy standards for both Reading and Writing using the Big idea. I was struck by the need to find alternative ways of making this happen. So it is in the context of making sense of written texts, reading critically and for different purposes, that I am suggesting the Paideia approach as part of our kite."
